- Research: talking to humans and never asking people what they think

As organizer of the WordPress Winnipeg meetup, Ryan spends his time contributing to the project that powers over 33% of the internet. There, Ryan comfortably talks on topics ranging from “how-to’s” for beginners to “Optimizing Server-side Cache” for experts. In 2016 (source: https://2016.winnipeg.wordcamp.org/) and 2015 (source: https://2015.winnipeg.wordcamp.org/) Ryan organized the Winnipeg WordCamp, a WordPress conference that has two tracks for both users and developers. Ryan loves the open-source world where he continually has the opportunity to both learn and teach.
